    I came across this stand earlier today.

    Have any of you seen it before?
    Anyone got one?
    I'd love to know your thoughts...

    Good Idea, I might have a go at making one for myself.

    I would feel more confident in it if there was a bar to join the two red feet together after the jack has been removed.
    i.e. To ensure they cannot move apart when holding the weight of the car. Overkill maybe, but it would feel happier.

    Once the weight of that corner of the car goes on, the friction will increase dramatically, I doubt that you could pull one of the legs enough to make it move.
    If the welding gave way it may be an issue, but I doubt it would come to that. Did you see the other version with a different leg attachment?

    This one might be cheaper.
